Contract Roles

What are the benefits of working as a contractor in Healthcare and Life Sciences?

Although not suited to everyone, Pharma contract roles do have a raft of benefits for those looking to work on a temporary or short term basis. The recruitment process for contract roles is notoriously quicker than that of permanent recruitment due to its nature. Contract Pharma roles are typically required to ‘fill a gap’ within organisations, be it to temporarily replace a permanent member of staff or address an increased business need. This could be due to a new project or end of year rush, for example.

As a Pharma contractor within Healthcare and Life Sciences you will typically be well experienced in your field; you'll be able to take on your new role and fully immerse yourself in its duties from the word go.

In return, working in a Pharma contract role will provide you with plenty of opportunities to work across a range of companies in your field and the opportunity to flexibly structure your working life while earning a competitive living.  Many of those working in contract roles relish the flexibility to up-skill themselves on a continuous basis as they learn differing practise from company to company.

Upon expressing a desire to work with a Pharma contract role, our consultants will register you formally for work. This will include verifying your right to work, checking any industry qualifications and necessary security checks and obtaining a reference history. From here we will keep you informed of any contract roles available that match your skill set.  Should you decide a certain position is for you, we will send your CV immediately to the recruiting client.  A telephone or face to face interview will follow and should you be successful, we’ll be able to get you in role imminently or as required.

Once in your role, your consultant will be available throughout to ensure your contract is running smoothly. We will explain fully how the timesheet and payment process works and are more than happy and equipped for our candidates to manage their finances via an Umbrella or Limited company if this is preferable.
